Product Description

Humans have always connected through stories. And even in our busy, technology-driven lives, stories provide the chance to be fully present with our children and open up opportunities for deep conversations. Listening to read-aloud stories also increases our kids' academic success, inspires compassion, and fortifies them with the inner strength they need to face life's challenges. As homeschooler Sarah Mackenzie has found with her own six children, reading aloud long after kids are able to read to themselves can deepen relationships in a powerful way.

Founder of the immensely popular Read-Aloud Revival podcast, Sarah knows first-hand how reading can change a child's life. In The Read-Aloud Family, she offers the inspiration and age-appropriate book lists you need to start a read-aloud movement in your own home. From a toddler's wonder to a teenager's resistance, Sarah details practical strategies to make reading aloud a meaningful family ritual.

In The Read-Aloud Family, Sarah Mackenzie has written a true gem. The vetted lists of good books for each age group is priceless in itself. Equally so, Sarah has provided accessible and powerfully written research on why reading aloud is so important to children and families. Sarah is also a natural storyteller. Humanity and family joy rise up off these pages. I highly recommend this book.

I’ve devoured books since I was a child, but passing that hunger to learn along to my children is less natural than I expected. Then I found Sarah Mackenzie. She equips book lovers to raise our children to be voracious readers and voracious learners—and
walks us through how to start, even from as early as when they can fold themselves into our laps. As an avid reader and an author and a mom who has filled the rooms of our house with books: what you have found here is GOLD.

    --Sara Hagerty, author of Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet and Unseen:
The Gift of Being Hidden in a World that Loves to be Noticed

    Sarah Mackenzie shares advice and anecdotes about reading aloud and how life-changing it can be for both our children and ourselves! Why is reading aloud to our children so important? It can help our kids be more successful in school and in life, and it can help us be more present as we spend time with our children. It helps us develop and deepen our relationships with our kids. Books can be an amazing vehicle for shared experiences and a source for wonderful conversations.

    I found myself highlighting many passages as I read this book. I love how real, honest, and relatable Sarah is as she provides occasional snapshots of her family life. I love that she tells me not only why I should read aloud often with my kids, but also how I can make the most of our read-aloud time. Sarah gives me the tools I need to take my current read-aloud time with my kids to a deeper level through questioning and discussions, but in a non-threatening and natural way.

    Some of my favorite parts of the book are the book lists Sarah provides and the many different ways those book lists are presented. There is an annotated book list of Sarah's 20 favorite books to read aloud for each of 4 different age groups. Then, all of the books Sarah has mentioned can be located by title, by author or illustrator, and by age recommendation. I find it incredibly helpful to have the books indexed in such a variety of ways!

    I highly recommend The Read-Aloud Family for anyone who wants to cherish and make the most of the time they have with the children in their lives.

    (I was given an advanced reader copy from the publisher so that I might provide an honest review of this book. The opinions expressed are completely my own).
